SPECIAL REPORT

Student Alliance



injunction denied


By MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Writer

The Student Alliance party's at-
tempt to halt the use of public fund-
ing to promote the Renew Your Re-
itz campaign was denied Monday
afternoon at the Alachua County
Civil Justice Center.
Four members of the party filed a
motion against UF President Bernie
Machen, members of the UF's Board
of Trustees and several other univer-
sity officials for allowing university
money to be used for creating and
distributing fliers calling for the Re-
itz Union renovation.
Judge Robert E. Roundtree said
the complaint, as filed, was not valid
because the statute cited by party
members applies to city and county
governments but not universities.
"This is an issue of public funds
being used to promote a campaign,"
said Student Alliance party Senate
leader Jonathan Ossip.


On Friday, the four members
filed a motion for temporary injunc-
tion, an action that, if passed, would
have forced the Reitz Union renova-
tion campaign to immediately re-
move all promotional signs, posters
and fliers from campus.
The motion
asked the court to
prohibit spending
public funds to
pay for political
advertisements
in support of the
proposed Reitz
Union student
fee, according to
the official brief submitted by Ossip.
The 53-page brief was compiled
over the weekend by Ossip without
the help of an attorney.
Ossip said there needs to be a law
prohibiting publicly funded cam-
paigns on campus.

Meal limit stirs residents


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

For Pat Fitzpatrick, the lifting of the meal
restrictions at the St. Francis House for three
days out of the year is not only inadequate
- it's an insult.
"My father fought in World War II to
fight fascism," said Fitzpatrick, a homeless
awareness activist. "We need to fight fas-
cism here in Gainesville."
The recent ruling by the Gainesville
City Commission, which allows St. Francis
House to serve beyond the 130-meal limit
on Thanksgiving, Christmas and a day of
the shelter's choosing, has been met with
both relief and dissatisfaction.
According to City of Gainesville spokes-
man Bob Woods, the move is the city's at-
tempt to balance its need to provide meal


provisions to the homeless while protecting
neighboring residents from the adverse im-
pacts of the provision.
"Just imagine if your house was
across the street, and you saw all
these people. Whether you like it or
not, it has an impact on your quality
of life."
Bob Woods
City of Gainesville spokesman

He emphasized the commission's care-
ful consideration of both sides of the issue,
noting how much the measure affects the
Gainesville community.
"Just imagine if your house was across
the street, and you saw all these people," he

Gainesville IHOP gives


free flapjacks today


* TODAY IS NATIONAL
PANCAKE DAY.

By ERICA JOHNSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

The International House of Pan-
cakes is giving diners a reason to
get in a sticky situation.
Today is National Pancake Day,
and IHOP, which has a Gainesville
location at 3265 SW 13th St., is treat-
ing guests to a free stack of syrup-
covered flapjacks from 7 a.m. to 10
p.m.
IHOP began the celebration in
2006.
While the pancakes are free to
all visitors, IHOP requests that
customers consider giving a small
donation to the Children's Miracle


Network.
For five years, the IHOP in
Gainesville has participated in the
event to benefit Shands Children's
Hospital.
Scott Stazzone, the general man-
ager of the IHOP on 13th Street, said
they gave away 2,011 stacks of free
pancakes last year and raised more
than $1,200.
Around Stazzone, who
Gainesville will be cooking
the pancakes all
day, said the charity is one of the
reasons people continue to come
back each year.
"This is such a great way for us
to give back to our community in
hopes of finding cures for sick kids
around the world," he said. "It real-
ly makes the whole day worth it."

Gainesville woman bites man's arm over $5
A fight over $5 ended with the arrest of a Gainesville woman
after she bit her partner in front of their children Sunday.
Jamie Ruffner, 27, grabbed a frying pan and threw it, just
missing the children. Ruffner continued to throw objects from
around the room until the man grabbed her, the report said.
Ruffner then bit him in his arm, tearing the flesh with her
teeth. She caused damage that will leave a permanent scar, ac-
cording to the report. Ruffner is charged with one count of ag-
gravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of battery
resulting in bodily harm.

WEATHER

Increase in hurricanes could stem from El Nino


By MELINDA CARSTENSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Atlantic hurricane season
may be months away, but me-
teorologists are forecasting more
storms than last year in the 2010
season.
Steve Letro, the meteorologist
at the National Weather Service
in Jacksonville, said weakening El
Ninfo conditions could contribute


to an increase in hurricanes in the
upcoming season, which officially
starts June 1.
El Ninfo is a change in the atmo-
sphere and ocean water tempera-
tures in the Pacific ocean and off the
northern coast of South America.
El Nifno occurs when the water
gets warmer and creates a stronger
wind shear in the Caribbean and
Atlantic ocean, Letro said.
Gerry Bell, a hurricane fore-
caster at the National Oceanic and


"I don't know where any of
them are going to go."
Steve Letro
meteorologist at the National
Weather Service in Jacksonville

Atmospheric Administration, said
that although El Ninfo is weaken-
ing, it's far too early to determine
if it will be a factor in the upcoming
season.


A strong El Ninfo tends to sup-
press hurricane activity in terms of
number and duration, Bell said.
Bell said there has been an in-
crease in hurricane activity in the
U.S. since 1995.
But last year's hurricane activity
fell below average because of this
effect, according to Bell.
According to the National Hur-
ricane Center, there were three
hurricanes in 2009.
Letro said El Ninfo is also part of


the reason the U.S. has had an un-
usually cooler winter this year.
Nevertheless, Letro said, it's im-
portant that people focus on the fact
that a hurricane could potentially
hit their area, not just the numbers,
because the path of a hurricane is
not predictable.
"When you see the forecast for
the number of storms coming up,
our reaction should be 'that's nice,
but I don't know where any of them
are going to go,"' he said.


Asian-American Student Union holds final SG debate


* CANDIDATES FOR TREASURER
AND VICE PRESIDENT ATTENDED.

By MATT HARRINGER
Alligator Staff Writer

In the last debate before the Student Gov-
ernment election, both parties agreed that
UF's Asian-American students deserve more
attention.


Candidates for Student Body vice president
and Student Body treasurer debated in front of
60 students Monday night at the event spon-
sored by the Asian American Student Union.
Rafael Yaniz, the Student Alliance party
candidate for Student Body treasurer, said his
party has a plan to eliminate wasteful spend-
ing and wants to allocate the money saved to
student groups like the AASU.
Virlany Taboada, the Unite Party's can-
didate for Student Body treasurer, said that,
under the Unite Party, SG took money from


Accent and SG Productions to give to AASU
Kaleidoscope Month events.
Yaniz said it was a Student Alliance party
member who pushed for money reallocation.
"We want to be your friend, your ally and
your advocate,"
Student Government Yaniz said.
Elections Both groups
proposed more
meeting space for the group.
Marcus Dixon, the Unite Party's candidate
for Student Body vice president, said the reno-


vated Reitz Union would have a multicultural
center with room for the group to meet.
"We could've done a better job in the last
year," Dixon said. "But under my administra-
tion I want to increase communication with all
communities, especially the Asian-American
community."
Abner Yang, an AASU member, said he
was leaving the debate the same way he came
- undecided. He said he plans on examin-
ing both parties' platforms on their Web sites
before voting.

UF alumna kicks off


eating disorder week


By MEG WAGNER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Beauty and the Jock shared the
stage Monday at the Reitz Union.
Allison Kreiger Walsh, the 2002
Miss University of Florida, and
Patrick Bergstrom, a two-year aca-
demic all-conference lacrosse player
at Wesley College, have both battled
eating disorders.
The two spoke to an audience
of about 400 at "Beauty and the
Jock: Real People. Real Stories," an
event organized by Accent speakers
bureau in collaboration with UF's
GatorWell, Athletic Association,
Panhellenic Council, Interfratemity
Council and Women's Leadership
Council.
The event kicked off National
Eating Disorders Awareness Week,
which started on Sunday and will
run until Saturday.
Bergstrom was sidelined from
his lacrosse team in college due to
his struggles with anorexia.
"Everybody told me that guys
don't have eating disorders, and


I believed, but deep in my heart, I
knew something was wrong," Berg-
strom told the audience.
He was later diagnosed with an-
orexia, as well as substance abuse,
and was told he had 12 months to
live if he didn't have an immediate
intervention.
"I chose to live," he said. "When
I was struggling with an eating dis-
order I wasn't living. I was just exist-
ing."
Walsh, a UF graduate with a
degree in public relations, battled
bulimia and anorexia during high
school for three and a half years.
She spent her childhood and ad-
olescence training as a competitive
baton twirler. She also described
herself as a straight-A perfectionist.
Walsh said the first time she
threw up, she vomited because she
was upset. She felt better and began
associating vomiting with relief.
"I was a walking, talking example
of an eating disorder," Walsh said.
Walsh was paid $1,700 and Berg-
strom was paid $2,420 to speak at
the event, according to Jason Atter-
mann, Accent chairman.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Parties go extra mile for votes


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Campaigning during this Stu-
dent Government election season
involved a blend of traditional
approaches and new campaign
tactics.
The newly formed Student Al-
liance party has implemented sev-
eral new campaign strategies.
Ben Cavataro, the Student Al-
liance party candidate for Student
Body president, said his party's
campaign tactics differ from those
of the Unite Party in several ways.
Cavataro said the Student Al-
liance party sent teams of repre-
sentatives to campaign at a UF
satellite campus, which includes
pharmacy and health science stu-
dents.
They answered questions about
the proposed Reitz Union fee and
also discussed how it could ad-
versely impact satellite campuses,
Cavataro said.


Cavataro said the trip was re-
ally about engaging with an entire
population of people that are not
connected to the main campus in
the way that they should be.
If SG elections featured online
voting then these students would
be totally enfranchised, Cavataro
said.
Representatives who traveled
to satellite cam-
puses also dis-
cussed how they
could offer more
events and pro-
grams for profes-
sional students.
Cavataro "We're really
making a special
effort to engage with all communi-
ties," Cavataro said.
Cavataro said the Student Al-
liance party has also held fund-
raisers with local businesses, and
party members walked students
to class with umbrellas during bad
weather.


"We've just been trying all dif-
ferent sorts of things," Cavataro
said.
Unite Party spokesman Ben
Meyers said the only change the
Unite Party has made to its cam-
paign tactics involves making the
campaign more extensive.
The Unite Party executive can-
didates began a 24-hour campaign
push at 5 a.m. that will end at 5
a.m. Wednesday.
They will be campaigning on
campus, visiting the late-night
study spots in the Hub and visit-
ing local hangout spots.
"They just want to do every-
thing they can to meet every per-
son they can," Meyers said.
Meyers said Student Body Pres-
ident Jordan Johnson did some-
thing similar last spring while he
was campaigning.
"We're proud to still hold the
values we held when we were
founded," Meyers said.

Gator sunscreen


wards off scales

By KELLEY GARNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gator fans will be able to hit the beach over break without
worrying about the redness of a sunburn clashing with their
orange and blue gear.
Game Face Performance Sunscreen, based out of Grand Rap-
ids, Mich., developed a sunscreen line, featuring the licensed
logos of 42 different NCAA teams. The
Spotlight on the best-selling schools are UF and the Uni-
Swamp versity of Texas at Austin, said Meghan
Follen, marketing specialist.
The SPF 30 sunscreen is sold in a 2-ounce bottle with a clip
for $5 or in a 6-ounce bottle with a continuous-spray nozzle
for $10.
The GatorWell Health Hut is collaborating with Game Face
Performance Sunscreen to provide samples to UF students be-
fore Spring Break, said Samantha Evans, a health educator and
the coordinator of Health Hut. The hut will have a limited sup-
ply of free samples in different sizes, as well as Frisbees and
brochures with sun-safety information, Evans said.

Editorial

Rock the Vote

Students should care

about SG elections


day.
t's finally here the first Student Government election
And while so many of you are going to try to avoid the
hoards of blue or green shirts on Turlington Plaza today,
we'd like to make one final plea to you to go out and place
your votes.
Besides the fact that it only takes two minutes and there
are more than 10 different polling places, voting in SG
elections is actually more important than you think.
Other than the $14.4 million budget that SG officials
oversee, which is comprised of your Student Activity &
Service Fees that are taken out of the tuition you pay, the
Student Body president is the only student voice on the
board of trustees and the Senate decides what student or-
ganizations get funding.
He or she sits in a stuffy room all day with stuffy old
men and goes to bat for what the students want.
These may seem like small, meaningless things, but just
ask Gators for a Sustainable Campus, who almost lost its
funding last year, how important SG is.
And turnout in past elections is nothing to brag about.
Voting numbers from past elections show the Student
Body's overwhelming apathy when it comes to SG as a
whole.
Last fall, only 8,483 out of UF's 49,679 students voted.
That's 17 percent of the Student Body.
Even at one of its high points, during fall 2008 of the
presidential election, only 10,469 students bothered to
vote.
Can we just point out how pathetic that is?
This group of students that makes up SG has its grubby
fists on more money than all the Alligator staff combined
will make in a lifetime, and the vast majority of you don't
even care enough to lean over a folding table and fill in a
few bubbles?
You already know our stance on Student Body presi-
dent, vice president and treasurer.
You also know that we support the Reitz Union fee -
granted that they follow through on the fact that graduate
assistants will not pay.
There are also two other referendums. The first one,
a constitutional amendment, is pretty confusing, and we
don't really care.
The other one, however, may be small and shoved to
the bottom of the page, but it's an important issue for our
university.
The questions ask if UF should join the Worker Rights
Consortium, a national organization that monitors labor
conditions, to ensure that licensed merchandise with UF
and Gators logos is not made in sweatshops. Our answer
is yes.
Voting yes won't immediately effect campus-wide
change, but a position of solidarity among students will
impart a powerful message to university administration
and make it clear that Gators don't support the use of
sweat shops (except those of you in your orange and blue
Nikes).
The most important thing to realize, though, is that we
actually don't care that much how you vote we just care
that you vote.

Gators shouldn't support sweatshops


Today and tomorrow, we're going to have an opportuni-
ty to vote on a ballot question to register the Student Body's
opinion on whether UF should affiliate with the Worker
Rights Consortium, a labor rights advocacy group that works
against sweatshops through factory monitoring and investi-
gations. If UF affiliates with the WRC, it will help ensure that
UF apparel isn't made with sweatshop labor.
I'm voting "yes" in support of affiliation with the WRC,
and I'm really hoping you'll consider doing the same.
UF is already affiliated with the Fair Labor Association, a
similar organization that shares many of the same goals with
the WRC. But the FLA gets criticism for its connections to the
apparel industry, the very industry on which it's supposed
to be keeping tabs. By the way the FLA is structured, six rep-
resentatives from the industry sit on its board of directors,
and according to its Web site, the FLA receives funding in
part from "participating companies."
The WRC, according to its Executive Director Scott Nova
in a phone interview, is independent from the industry, both
financially and in its governance.
To be completely clear, the referendum won't take any
immediate action. Even if a majority of the Student Body
votes "yes" on the ballot question, UF won't automatically
affiliate with the WRC; affiliation requires the approval of UF
President Bernie Machen and the board of trustees. (Which,
by the way awesome indie-pop band name.) But passing
the referendum would certainly send a clear message of how
UF students feel about the issue, and passing it by a sizable
margin will go a long way in helping campus advocates bol-
ster their case for affiliation to the administration.
I know, I don't like getting my paws too dirty with Stu-
dent Government stuff either, but this isn't a blue shirt/
green shirt issue. It's not even too much of a (real-life) politi-
cal issue. After all, I don't think it's particularly partisan or
radical to say that workers deserve to be treated fairly and
responsibly or that they deserve to work in conditions that
are safe and humane.


And it's important to remember
that the WRC is not, by any stretch of
the imagination, some fringe group.
According to the list of affiliates on its
Web site, 186 colleges and universities
across the country are affiliated with
Joe Dellosa the WRC, including four schools -
letters@alligator org University of Tennessee, University of
South Carolina, Vanderbilt University
and Louisiana State University in
the Southeastern Conference.
To put it bluntly, the schools that affiliate with the WRC
are not just a bunch of schools that suck at sports. Of the
12schools that have played in a BCS National Championship
game since 1998, five are affiliated with the WRC. Of the 15
schools that have played in a men's basketball championship
in the past decade, 11 are affiliated with the WRC. In fact, the
only two schools that have won a men's basketball champi-
onship in the past decade that weren't affiliated are Univer-
sity of Kansas and UF. The WRC is entirely mainstream.
There's no doubt that there's ample reason to be proud
of being a Gator, and the cheerful alacrity with which we
don Gators apparel is a natural expression of that. And even
the most school spirit-averse student has to be at least a little
charmed by being a surrounded in a sea of orange and blue.
And as dorky as it sounds, I always get warm fuzzies
whenever I'm not in Gainesville and a stranger with a Gators
shirt spots my own and offers a knowing smile and, if I'm
lucky, a zealous, "Go Gators." I am admittedly one of the
people who has always cringed at any of The Gator Nation
ad campaigns, but I kind of love it when that happens.
But I'd love it more if we knew it wasn't the product of
child labor or worker exploitation. Affiliating with the WRC
will go a long way in helping us know that, And voting "yes"
on the ballot question is a good first step to affiliation.

Letters to the Editor
Benefits of Reitz renovation will outweigh
costs
The Alligator's endorsement of the Reitz
Union referendum has me at the edge of my
seat. I read the Alligator daily and recognize
it as the primary and most knowledgeable
source for everything going on on campus.
For weeks, I have read about the proposed
student fee to repair and renovate the Reitz
Union. I heard the potential price but wasn't
aware of the potential results. The Alligator
Editorial Board has pulled the rug out from
under my feet and made me think twice about
this issue.
I have always seen the Alligator as being
the only truly independent entity in Student
Government politics. The Alligator is never in-
fluenced by certain organizations. It publishes
stories that the students care about. Therefore,
an endorsement from them weighs heavily in
my decision on how to vote.
The main reason I had been planning to
vote against the Unite Party was because it
seemed to be single-handedly pushing the Re-
itz Union issue down the throats of students. I
was unaware of truly substantive reasons why
one should support a fee increase of more than
$100 per semester. The Alligator has validated
the claims of Unite and the Renew Your Reitz
campaign that there are significant necessary
repairs and that there are amazing benefits to
be gained by a renovation.
Laura Brancheau
UFstudent

Reitz Union renovation is unreasonable
Monday's editorial endorsing the Reitz
Union fee is indicative of the shortsightedness
of the Alligator's editorial staff. Yes, support-
ing the fee so long as graduate assistants are
exempted from it seems like a good idea. I'm
a teaching assistant, and I, too, find the logic
that leads to this enticing because I stand to
benefit from it. However, there is nothing
that Student Government can do to assure us
that this fee will be waived for graduate assis-
tants. The Student Body President Jordan


Johnson now, and whoever his successor may
be is merely one member of the board of
trustees and can only propose such a waiver.
Moreover, as it stands on the day of an election
that puts such an important matter to vote, a
waiver of the Reitz Union fee for graduate as-
sistants has not even been officially presented
to the trustees. A vote in favor of this fee is a
vote based merely on the fleeting hope that
UF's administration and trustees will have the
goodness in their hearts to cut some slack to
those who work the hardest to keep this uni-
versity running.
Additionally, everyone fails to mention
that this waiver will not include graduate stu-
dents who are not graduate assistants, teach-
ing assistants or research assistants. These stu-
dents pay for their entire tuition and fees out
of pocket, which causes hardships just as great
as those felt by graduate assistants. The same
goes for undergraduates, for whom the cost of
a UF education will continue to rise. And yet
it seems like a good idea to help the adminis-
tration approve higher fees to rebuild a build-
ing that has already been heavily renovated in
the last 10 years to apparently no avail, that is
primarily a giant food court and Parthenon for
SG executives and senators, and that will not
be finished in time for those of us currently
attending to even use? I think not. In short,
there is no good reason to vote yes on this ref-
erendum. Before they renew the Reitz, SG, the
administration and the trustees need to renew
their approach to funding and the reasoning
behind the proposed renovations.

Unite's Senate candidates chosen based
on obedience, not merit
The Alligator forgot the most important
choice voters face in its editorial: the Senate
slate.
The Student Alliance party's Senate slate is
filled with campus leaders from dozens of stu-
dent organizations. All of our candidates were
selected because they have a drive to make


Student Government better. They think SG is
broken, and now it is time to fix it.
The Unite Party slate was not chosen based
on merit. Its candidates are based on what
seats are assigned to a particular organization.
I have no doubt that some of its candidates are
qualified, but a majority were chosen because
they won't question the party line. Obedience,
not leadership, is its strongest attribute.

Selwach needs to take stronger stand on
legalization of marijuana
I don't get it. Is Richard Selwach for the
legalization of the maple tree, or does he just
want Florida to secede to Canada? If you are
going to stand up for an issue as heated and as
important as the legalization of marijuana, do
so boldly, my friend!

Frank Walch's comparison of Unite Party to
Nazi leaders is offensive, shameful
As a Jew and as a decent human being, I
was thoroughly offended by Frank Walch's
letter to the editor Monday that compared cer-
tain leaders of the Unite Party to Nazi leaders.
Though Walch specified that he did not feel
as though a Student Government politician
could be described as being as evil as a Nazi
figure (thankfully he was willing to grant that
at the least), his letter is a blatant character-
assassination attempt. Tell me, Mr. Walch,
how on Earth one could possibly equate a few
thousand dollars spent on alleged perks with
a "fascist agenda"? How could you possibly
insinuate that the hundreds of volunteers for
Unite have been "coerced" into giving their
time? How could you ignore the accomplish-
ments made in the past year and instead credit
the administration?
It's time to put the Holocaust behind us.
People in SG need to stop throwing the term
"Nazi" around as if it's simply a bad name to
call someone. To me, and to everyone who


shares my faith, that term represents an orga-
nization that killed 6 million of my brethren.
I could hate the Unite Party as much as you
seem to, Mr. Walch, but I could never compare
someone I simply disagree with politically to a
mass-murdering, bigoted concept.
You should be ashamed of yourself, and
the Alligator should be ashamed for publish-
ing that letter.

Student Alliance to improve Senate if
elected for some seats
Recently, the Alligator published an en-
dorsement of various executive candidates
and certain referenda. However, the newspa-
per failed to mention the other group of stu-
dents running for election. Forty-seven Senate
seats are being contested during the spring
election, and the Student Alliance party has a
slate worth an endorsement from the Alligator.
Amalgamating a diverse group of students, the
Student Alliance Senate slate can be credited
with many of the "70 Platform Points" of the
Student Alliance. The Student Alliance slate, if
given a chance at a Senate majority, will quick-
ly act to annul more than $1 million in waste
in Student Government. We will swiftly post
our voting records online, mitigate the lack
of transparency at the legislative level, pass
legislation to encourage ethics at all levels of
SG, expand free printing, promote sustainable
practices and enact many other of the Student
Alliance party's published initiatives. The cur-
rent Senate, thoroughly dominated by a Unite
Party majority, has been relegated to a lack-
luster rubber stamp. Never contradicting the
executive, the Senate has continually refused
to invoke its powers of investiture and its right
to check the other branches of SG. If elected
to Senate, we will reinvigorate the legislative
prerogatives lost to autocratic history. Fight
for your rights as students and vote for the
Student Alliance Tuesday and Wednesday.

Florida will continue difficult stretch


UF freshman Lauren Embree and the Gators will compete in Gainesville today for
the first time since Feb. 8.


By ANDREW OLSON
Alligator Writer

The Gators are ready for a double dose of
their biggest rival.
The No. 8 women's tennis team starts things
off when it hosts FSU today at 5, and the No. 7
men will host the Seminoles on Wednesday.
"Florida State always seems to bring out the
best in us," UF women's coach Roland Thorn-
qvist said. "We know we are going to play a
team that is fired up to play us."
For the women, the No. 14 Seminoles will
be the latest in a tough stretch of opponents.
On Feb. 12th, the Gators traveled to Madi-
son, Wis., for the ITA Team Indoor Champion-
ships.
After beating No. 16 Michigan, they
dropped consecutive matches to No. 3 North-
western and No. 12 UCLA.
Thorqvist saw the trip as a learning expe-
rience for his team.
"Indoors was good for us," Thornqvist
said. "We played some of the best teams in the
country."
The FSU match will be UF's first at home
in more than two weeks, and on a team with
native-Floridians, including No. 10 Allie Will
and No. 22 Lauren Embree, the rivalry is well-
understood.
"We're excited to be playing our rival at
home," Will said. "We hope to see a good
crowd out there."
Will, a Boca Raton native, is familiar with
the rivalry carrying over to all sports.
Her teammate is somewhat conflicted.
Embree, from Marco Island, is not the only
member of her family who plays collegiate
tennis.
Her brother, Keith Embree, plays for FSU.
"He actually hasn't been giving me too


against FSU

much stuff about it," Embree said. "I can't re-
ally hate Florida State that much when I have
a brother there."
The men's team also has native-Floridian
freshmen who are excited to play against FSU
for the first time.
"We're pumped," freshman Sekou Bangou-
ra Jr. said. "You try to get the same level of ex-
citement for every opponent, but it's hard not
to get more excited for FSU."
Bangoura, a Bradenton native, is coming off
a strong performance Sunday against USF.
In singles, Bangoura was the first to finish
and put the team closer to clinching the victory
with his 6-1, 6-1 win.
Another freshman familiar with both
schools is Boca Raton native Bob Van Over-
beek, who received interest from FSU before
choosing to play for UF.
"Idon't know if you would
call it recruiting, but I remem-
ber getting a lot of mail from
VWomen's them," Van Overbeek said.
Tennis "Their No. 1 guy was doing
really good at the time, and it
seemed like every time he did something they
sent me a letter about it."
Tennis is a sport that rewards depth, and
the newcomers are contributing significantly
this year.
Sunday against USF, Van Overbeek and
freshman Billy Federhofer won the first dou-
bles set from the No. 3 court.
In singles, Van Overbeek won at court No.
4 and helped put Florida in position to seal the
victory before the top three positions had fin-
ished.
UF will rely on that depth against FSU.
"Florida State has a 1-2-3 combination as
good as or better than anybody in the coun-
try," UF men's coach Andy Jackson said.


UF WOMEN'S GOLF

Gators in first place after Day 1


By KELSIE HOECHERL
Alligator Writer

After two rounds of play in the Central
District Invitational, the Florida women's golf
team is in the lead, 20 strokes ahead of second
place.
The Gators finished 36 holes with a five
under-par score of 571 (290-281) and with four
players in the top 10.
"It [today] was a true team effort, which is
probably what I am most proud of," UF wom-
en's coach Jan Dowling said. "Their patience
out their today [is the second thing I contrib-
ute their success to] it is something that we had
been talking about all fall and after our first
tournament this spring, just staying really pa-
tient and really confident in their ability. It was
difficult conditions today, it was really windy
in the afternoon, and we're seven under as a
team...Everyone stayed patient and positive
all day, nothing ever rattled them."
Freshman Isabelle Lendl, who carded 141
(74-67, -3), has continued to build off her suc-
cess at the Northrop Grumman Regional Tour-
nament, where she battled back to finish in 11th
place. Lendl took that confidence to her round
Monday, finishing in second place one stroke
behind leader Arkansas' Kelli Shean .
"With golf, it's a long term work ethic, and
that is something that Isabelle is totally commit-
ted to what she is doing with her golf game,"
Dowling said. "I am really happy for her and
proud of her. All her hard work is paying off.
She is hitting the ball super solid right now and
this afternoon she made a lot of putts."


In both the first and second rounds, Lendl
proved that age and talent don't necessarily
go hand in hand. The freshman outplayed her
older teammates, carding eight birdies to keep
her five bogeys at bay.
In a tie for third is Lendl's older sister, soph-
omore Marika. She finished just one stroke be-
hind with a two round total of 142 (-2). Lendl
made an even par her first round and then went
on to finish two-under in her second round.
Finishing in fifth place, sophomore Evan
Jensen shot a one-under-par score of 143. Jens-
en made par in her first round and then went
one under in her second round with one bogey
and two birdies.
"It [today] was a true team effort,
which is probably what I am most
proud of."
Jan Dowling
UF women's golf coach

Freshman Mia Piccio finished in a tie for
seventh, just two strokes behind Jensen. De-
spite a double bogey in her first round, Piccio
was able to keep it even.
Rounding out the lineup for the Gators was
junior Jessica Yadloczky, who finished last for
the squad. The junior finished nine strokes be-
hind her freshman teammate after two double
bogeys and a bogey set her four behind in the
first round.
"We are going to attack this course again
and keep doing what we have been doing,"
Dowling said. "It's been working."

Student organizes war between humans and zombies


* A RULE MEETING WILL BE
HELD WEDNESDAY.

By JEFFREY DANLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

If you happen to see zombies on
campus in the next couple of weeks,
don't be alarmed.
Freshman Jesse Schmitt is orga-
nizing the first game of Gators Hu-
mans vs. Zombies for Thursday.
"I thought UF has got to have


this kind of thing, and I have to get
involved," Schmitt said.
The game, known to its follow-
ers as HvZ, was invented in 2005 by
Brad Sappington and Chris Weed at
Goucher College in Baltimore.
The game consists of two sides,
Humans and Zombies, in which the
goal for the Humans is to survive
the "Zombie outbreak." If a Zom-
bie tags a Human on campus, that
Human becomes a Zombie, but to
defend themselves, Humans can
"stun" Zombies by hitting them


with a sock or Nerf gun.
The game gained popularity after
being featured on the "The Colbert
Report," in which Stephen Colbert
deemed HvZ as the No. 1 threat to
America.
On It has since ex-
Campus ploded onto college
campuses across the
nation and in other countries such
as Denmark, Brazil and Australia.
Some in-state schools to join the
craze include Florida Gulf Coast
University, Florida State University


and University of South Florida.
Stephen Fitzmaurice, a modera-
tor of the game, hopes HvZ becomes
popular at UF as it has in other plac-
es in the world.
"I think it will most definitely
catch on," he said. "It's our job to
ensure that everybody has as much
fun as possible and to help the game
grow."
A final rule meeting will take
place Wednesday night at 7:20 in the
Florida Gym, Room 210.
The game will take place on cam-


pus, but safe zones are restricted to
academic buildings, libraries and the
Reitz Union. Humans and Zombies
will be identifiable by the bandan-
nas worn either around their necks
or heads.
Schmitt said more than 275 peo-
ple have registered to play. Partici-
pants have to register online before
they can participate in the group.

the Web site at humansvszombies.

said. "Whether you like it or not,
it has an impact on your quality
of life."
Kent Vann, the executive di-
rector of the St. Francis House,
welcomed the commission's de-
cision. Although he admitted he
would like to see fewer restric-
tions, Vann said he would take
whatever days he could get.
"It's time we recognize what's
going on in this country and quit
bringing in Washington politics
into our small town," he said.
"We have neighbors in need. We
should be enacting codes that
help one another."
Although one of the three holi-
days is still left to be determined,
Vann said that he is leaning to-
ward having it on either Easter
or Independence Day. He said he
will let St. Francis guests decide
the date.
But some were not as recep-
tive to the news.


Jon DeCarmine, the director
for the Alachua County Coalition
for the Homeless and the Hun-
gry, believes the commission rul-
ing means nothing.
"All it means is that they've
made it detrimental [for the
homeless] for 362 days instead
of 365," DeCar-
mine said.
As for Fitz-
patrick, the per-
ceived indiffer-
ence from the
commission has
forced him to
DeCarmine
take drastic ac-
tion. Today, Fitzpatrick plans to
challenge Gainesville's panhan-
dling law by collecting milk for
the homeless.
"I've already spoken to my
lawyer," he said. "They can't tell
me who I can give a sandwich
to or that I can't give milk to a
child."

Reitz Union tour highlights building's inefficiencies, problems


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer


Despite talk during the Student Gov-
ernment campaign, there remains room
for discussion regarding the Reitz Union's
renovation and expansion.
Potential renovations include replacing
outdated pipes, some of which trace back
to 1967, and expanding student organiza-
tional space, said Ryan Moseley, former
Student Body president, who helped lead
a media tour Friday.
UF has more than 900
student organizations,
but the union only
has 27 rooms and a
handful of cubicles to

accommodate them, he said.
"It's crucial that students' voices be
heard for this project," Moseley said.
Alex Corillie, a UF physics sopho-
more who serves on the Reitz Union
Board of Managers, said another main
feature of the project calls for the expan-
sion of the union's auditorium from 300 to
1,500 seats.
"It looks like a high school classroom
from the 1940s," Corillie said.
In addition, the renovation plans call
for a 24-hour study center, multipurpose


meeting rooms, a fitness center and a
parking garage with 750 spaces, according
to the Renew Your Reitz campaign plat-
form, which promotes the renovation and
expansion of the Reitz Union.
Michael Mironack, the director of oper-
ations for the Reitz Union, said other, less
visible renovations could include replac-
ing pipes in the Reitz Union's basement.
The pipes control ventilation, plumb-
ing and other crucial functions that assist
in the building's day-to-day operations,
Mironack said.

"A lot of things we're dealing with are
infrastructure," he said. "If any of these
major systems go down, it will be cata-
strophic."
If multiple pipes stop working, the Re-
itz Union could be shut down, he said.
Mironack said now is the time to un-
dertake renovations because construction
costs are low.
"We're not making this stuff up," he
said. "We know for a fact that we have
these problems."
However, Mironack was quick to point
out that if anything is to
be done, it will be left
S up to the students.
"I want to reiter-
ate: This is a student
issue," he said.

Graduate assistants protest fee


By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Writer

For 33-year-old Regina Martin, lei-
sure time is a luxury that's never spent
bowling at the Reitz Union.
The UF English graduate assis-
tant's week is consumed with life as
a teacher of an upper-division English
class, and most of her money goes to-
ward living expenses.
"There are so many expenses the
university needs to be meeting in or-
der to fulfill its basic mission of educa-
tion," Martin said. "The Reitz Union is
not a priority."
Students will help decide the Reitz
Union's fate by voting Feb. 23 and 24
in the Student Government election.
The ballot includes two referen-
dum questions about a potential stu-


dent fee to help fund the renovation
and expansion of the Reitz Union.
Talk of the fee has stirred opposi-
tion from UF's Graduate Assistants
United, which represents the nearly
4,000 teaching and research assistants
who are both students and employees
of the university. Graduate assistants
differ from graduate students because
they work for the university.
According to Graduate Assistants
United member Craig Rinne, most
graduate assistants currently pay be-
tween $500 and $600 in student fees.
At first, Student Body President
Jordan Johnson felt the entire Student
Body should pay the potential fee, but
after about 15 meetings with graduate
assistants, he changed his position.

position to the fee, -.. .;ll.;tr.org


Campaign pushes repairs


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

There's a third party campaigning
in spring's Student Government elec-
tion: the Renew Your Reitz campaign.
Renew Your Reitz, a student-run
campaign, was launched last week
and has since recruited an estimated
200 volunteers to encourage students
to vote to approve the expansion and
renovation of the Reitz Union.
Alex Corillie, the campaign's
spokesman, said it is designed to edu-
cate students and explore alternative
sources of funding for the renovation,
such as donations from alumni.
He said representatives of the
campaign are speaking with students
about repairs and renovations that
will need to be made within the next


14 years.
Student Body President Jordan
Johnson said the expansion would
cost between $80 million and $90
million, but it has not yet been de-
termined how much of that will be
covered in donations from alumni,
contributions from the administration
and other sources of funding from the
university.
"We understand that we need
a student fee that's going to cover
roughly a little more than half that,"
Johnson said.
Corillie said many students have

after us," Corillie said.

Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
Junior Chandler Parsons and the Gators will look to pad their NCAA
Tournament resume against Tennessee tonight in Gainesville.


"We've had some crazy wins and
we've had some tough losses, so
you can't really complain about
that. It's not one shot that wins or
loses the game."
UF coach Billy Donovan said
the Volunteers have changed
quite a bit since the teams' first
matchup, making it even more
important for the Gators to put
the loss behind them.
"Right now, our guys under-
stand what goes into winning,"
Donovan said. "I think anything
that's happened in the past is re-
ally in the past. It has nothing to
do with going into this game."
Brian Williams, the 6-foot-l0,
278-pound backup center, re-
turned to the Volunteers after
serving a suspension for his Jan.
1 arrest. Vols coach Bruce Pearl
has also experimented with his
team by moving guard J.P. Prince
to the power forward spot in a
smaller, quicker lineup.
For UF to get its first win
against UT since Feb. 3, 2007,
Parsons pointed to four areas in
which the team needs to improve:
transition defense, rebounding,
turnovers and inbounds plays.
The Volunteers scored 13
fast-break points, outrebounded
the Gators 27-12 after halftime,
forced 17 turnovers and scored
several easy points on under-the-
basket inbounds plays in their
first matchup.
"We know those guys aren't
going to come in here and lay
down for us," Parsons said.
"They're in the same situation as
us. They're 8-4; we're 8-4. This
game means a lot to them, too.
It's just going to be about who
has the will to win."
Florida has had that will late-
ly, winning six of its last seven by
eight points or fewer and over-
coming poor outside-shooting
performances in most of them.
The Gators are 11th in the SEC in
three-point percentage in confer-
ence play, hitting just 30.3 per-
cent from beyond the arc.
"You don't shoot great every
night. It's really about the things
you can control," Donovan said.
"That's where the focus should
be placed, and that's where the
pressure needs to be placed."

Gators hit the road


* UF WILL PLAY LA SALLE
AT TEMPLE TODAY.

By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

Florida opened its inaugu-
ral season in front of a sold-
out home crowd Saturday. The
team enjoyed the attention, the
crowd and its 16-6 win over
Jacksonville.
However, the time to enjoy
that win is already over.
Less than 48 hours after the
inaugural game, UF (1-0) trav-
eled to Philadelphia on Mon-
day for its second game of the
season and first on the road -
a matchup against La Salle on
Tuesday.
The match was scheduled to
begin 3 p.m., but due to snow
on La Salle's field, the time and
location were changed to 12:30


p.m. at Temple.
UF coach Amanda O'Leary
said the quick turnaround from
competing on Saturday to Tues-
day's matchup is something her
young team has to get used to
because of its schedule.
She added it should be a pos-
itive because her players will
not have time to dwell on previ-
ous game results.
"They're going to have to
learn quickly
and make the
( -T1j adjustments
quickly and be
Lacrosse able to adapt to
the next game
we are play-
ing," O'Leary said. "We need
to continue to do the things that
are going to help us win games
versus trying to come up with
game plans for each and every
team we play."

Florida hopes to improve on possession, passing against La Salle

SILACROSSE, from page 17


Coach Amanda O'Leary and the Gators head to Philadelphia to play La Salle today in the UF lacrosse
program's first road game.


O'Leary shows her team film
and scouting reports to identify
its opponent's tendencies, but
ultimately the challenge for the
Gators is to make the necessary
adjustments in the short time
available.
Going up against La Salle on
Tuesday, UF will look to avoid
the fundamental mistakes that
it made against Jacksonville.
The team will have to clean up
its passing and pay attention to
fouls.
O'Leary said there was no ex-
cuse for having as many dropped
passes as the squad had against
Jacksonville, but the Gators
should be able to play a clean
game and keep possession of
the ball Tuesday because they
worked on those fundamentals
every day in practice.
She added that Saturday's
game against the Dolphins high-
lighted some other things that
her team will need to do in order
to beat La Salle.
"Defensively, it showed that
we have to communicate more,"
she said. "We have to be able to
play more as a defensive unit ver-
sus as seven individuals."
Offensively, she said her play-
ers will need to have more com-
posure on the field and better
possession time.
Going into Pennsylvania,


the Gators will have their work
cut out for them, and they may
have trouble implementing the
changes O'Leary said they need
to make.
Last week, La Salle senior Ste-
fany McKee was named Player of
the Week in the Atlantic 10 Con-
ference. Sophomore Sara Ciaver-
elli was dubbed Defensive Player
of the Week, and freshman Mela-
nie Sarcinello was Rookie of the
Week.

"Defensively, it showed
that we have to commu-
nicate more. We have to
be able to play more as a
defensive unit versus as
seven individuals."
Amanda O'Leary
UF lacrosse coach


The Explorers lost their sea-
son-opener 12-11 to Navy on the
road Feb. 12, but they had a week
off to prepare for the Gators' vis-
it.
O'Leary said they are athletic,
quick offensively and are fast to
collapse to double teams on de-
fense.
Subsequently, if UF wants to
return to Gainesville 2-0, it must
have a solid game on both ends of
the field Tuesday.

BOBBY, from page 17


joined a group of my friends who waited
all day (or if it was a weekend game, we
were out there Friday morning prepared
to spend the night) outside Gate 3 to guar-
antee ourselves front-row seats to every
game.
And it wasn't just us.
The atmosphere was similar to the
movie "The Warriors" that involved a city
filled with rival gangs.
Other than us known to others as the
New Kids there were the Hard Hats, the
Striped Guys and the Engineers, to name
just a few.
It was a competition to just get out there


first.
For the Kentucky game, due to UAA
rules, we camped out across the street 10
days before the game, a full week before
we were allowed to be there.
And it was only another day before the
next group showed up. The night before
the game, the line of people camping out
went down the ramp of Gate 3 and down
stadium road to near the baseball stadi-
um's entrance.
Once the fans were let in and the oppos-
ing teams came out, the heckling began.
And research was done, too.
Fans knew way more personal informa-
tion about some of the opposing players
than any fan should know.


For the game against Tennessee that
year, the Hard Hat group brought blown
up photos of UT guard Dane Bradshaw's
attractive sister. Throughout the game,
chants broke out about his sister every
time the ball touched his hands.
That ruthlessness and dedication is no
longer there. Fans just show up, cheer and
leave.
College basketball is one of the few
sports where fans can make a difference
and get inside an individual player's
head.
At football games, a loud crowd can
make it hard on an offense, but there is lit-
tle chance a player can hear taunts aimed
specifically at him.


This year, fans can show up half an
hour before tipoff and still get in the stu-
dent section.
Heck, before the Auburn game, spots
were still available the day of the game for
students to register.
And for the Kentucky game, there were
not more than a handful of people camp-
ing out.
The Rowdy Reptiles section never in-
cluded the alumni.
Although it helps if the team is bet-
ter than what the Gators are, it's on the
students to make the O'Connell Center a
place to fear playing at.
And that hasn't been there lately.

Constitution Amendments for the 2010 Spring Ballot

Fellow members of the Gator Nation:

As you may know, Student Government elections are upon us. While you may or may not vote in these elections, it is important that you know that this election is a bit different than most. Every 10
years, our student body Constitution demands that a Commission convene to draft revisions to our constitution, and this process has occurred over the last 14 months. The results of the
Commission's work will be on the ballot during this election and you will have the opportunity to accept or reject the changes. I write to you today, as the Chairman of this Commission, to encourage
you to vote in favor of these changes.

The 20 members of the Commission are proposing many important changes to our Constitution. The process was not a political process, but one designed to ensure that this important document
holds our elected leaders accountable, that this document is updated and current, and that our student body has access to our student courts and student leaders. Our changes lower the threshold
for impeachment for Student Senators that have been accused of official misconduct. We lowered the threshold to submit constitutional initiatives to the Student Supreme Court. In light of Florida
Board of Governors Resolution 08-23, we ensured the continued viability and presence of the former office of Honor Court Chancellor by creating a presidentially appointed position.

The 20 members of this Commission span the entire spectrum of our Gator Nation community. From Majority and Minority party senators, the Interim Dean of Students, the current Senate President
Pro-Ter, the current Chief Justice of the Student Body Supreme Court, the Director of Student Activities and Involvement, to many involved undergraduate, graduate, and law students. The result is
a comprehensive and united effort to help ensure that our student government, like our student body, remains unrivaled in reputation, both today and into the future. I would encourage you to review
the proposed changes and email me directly to discuss any questions you may have. We hope you will take the time to vote to pass this new Constitution.

Sincerely,
David M. Kemer
Chairman, 2009-2010 Constitution Revision Commission
3LAW
dkemer@ufl.edu

On Behalf of the Full Commission: Taylor Tribou, Ben Cavataro, Thomas Cockriel, Matt Michel, Jay Miller, Naadira Renfroe, Dan Siegel, Jacqueline Acosta, Victoria Ajayi, Kirby Bissel, Brooke Eisen-
smith, Audrey Goldman, Kara Olesky, Frank Pierce, Whitney Smith, Josh Winegar, Dr. Paige Crandall (Interim Dean of Students), Dr. Nancy Chrystal-Green (Director of Student Activities and In-
volvement), Mr. Chris Loschiavo (Director of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution).


Language as it will appear on the ballot:

Should the Student Body Constitution be amended to: change the time for appointment of Summer Replacement Senators from May 1 to
the last meeting of spring term; remove verbiage that purports to allow the Student Senate to contract on behalf of the student body;
permit the Student Senate to amend election laws within four weeks, rather than five weeks, of an election; comply with Florida Board of
Governors Resolution 08-23 by preserving the role of the Honor Code Chancellor, now referred to "Honor Code Executive Director," and
allowing this executive director to be appointed by the Student Body President; amend Article III to read "Funding Fee Increase Restric-
tions", instead of "Budget Restrictions"; ensure that terms of executive department heads expire concurrently with the terms of the elect-
ed executive officials; remove any reference to the "Student Honor Court" and "Student Honor Court Bar Association;" direct the submis-
sion of proposals by initiative to the Chief Justice of the Student Body; amend the proposal initiative process to provide that a petition
carrying the signatures of 5% of the student body shall be placed on the ballot; authorize the Elections Commission to determine if initia-
tive ballot titles and summaries are accurate and lawful and amend ballot titles and summary if they determine that they are not accurate,
subject to appeal to the Student Body Supreme Court; require 2/3 of the trial body of the Student Senate for conviction of impeachment,
instead of 3/4; make grammatical and other minor corrections and replacements.

Summary of changes proposed in the amendment:
1-1: Article II: Changes various wording in the article. For example, this proposal removes the words "by law", and replaces this phrase with "provide by Student Body law". Further, where the article used list every judicial office, it now simply states
"Student Government offices of the Judicial Branch". Where the article used to use the word "de jure", it now reads "automatic". Moves the non-discrimination clause to Article I. There are no major substantive changes in this proposal.
1-2: Article I: The non-discrimination clause is added here. Further, the basic rights under section 2 are now listed in a bullet point form, instead of reading as one full paragraph. The Honor Code is within this article.
1-3: Amends the preamble to read:
We, the Student Body of the University of Florida, in order to:
-Represent and defend the rights and interests of students to the university, the community, and government;
-Provide a forum for the expressions of student views and interests;

-Provide services and organize events for the benefit of students; and
-Help promote understanding and recognition of the responsibilities of students to the university, the community, and humanity,
Do hereby establish this Constitution.
2-1: Article III: Amends section 1 to read "All legislative powers of the Student Body shall be vested in a student senate.', instead of reading 'All legislative powers of the Student Body shall be vested in the student senate."
2-2: Article III: Capitalizes "Student Senate" (where it used to read "student senate"). Further, it changes the deadline to appoint summer senators from May 1, to the last meeting of spring term.
2-3: Article III: Amends section 5 to mandate that the Student Senate President and the Student Senate President Pro Tempore shall be elected by the members of the senate according to their rules and procedures.
2-4: Article III: Amends section 6 by removing subsection (i), which purported to give the student senate the right to contract on behalf of the student body.

2-6: Article III: Amends section 7 by adding the office of "Executive Director of the Honor Code Administration" to the list of officers allowed to address the student senate.
2-7: Article III: Amends section 9 title to read "Funding Fee Increase Restrictions" instead of reading "Budget Restrictions".
2-8: Article III: Amends section 7 by removing subsection (h), which purports to give the student senate the authority to regulate a student honor court bar association.
3-2: Article IV: Amends section 4 to allow the student body president to appoint a 'Student Honor Code Executive Director" to the cabinet. Further, it mandates that the terms of the heads of executive departments shall expire concurrently with the
expiration of the regular terms of the elected executive officials. Finally, it changes the term "University Cashier" to read "University Controller".
4-1: Article IV: Eliminates section 4 (student honor court) and other references to it. It clarifies that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court shall appoint law students to serve as temporary justices where an Associate or the Chief Justice is subject
to recusal.
5-1: Article V: Amends section 6 to require that the student senate to validate the general and run-off elections "in the next regularly scheduled senate meeting", instead of reading "no later than 10 school days after the last day of the final election
an election cycle" Further, it amends section 7 to read that campus wide officers elected in the spring general election in races requiring a majority vote shall assume office "on the last regularly scheduled class day", instead of reading "at 8:00 PM
on May 1st". Further, it amends section 8 to require a member of student government to hold a 2.5 GPA instead of a 2.0 GPA. Finally, it amends section 8 to read "Center for Student Activities and Involvement" instead of "Office of Student Activi-
ties".
6-1: Articles VII and VIII: Amends these articles to reverse the composition of the Impeachment Body and Trial Body and apply the same voting threshold of 2/3 for each body. The prior burden for the trial was 3/4. Amends the article to demand
that 5% of the electorate sign any initiative before it will be placed on the ballot and directs that any initiative be directed to the Chief Justice of the Student Supreme Court. It further allows the Elections Commission to review the ballot title and sum-
mary of any initiative to ensure it complies with the law, and allows them to amend it if they find it does not comply with the law, subject to Supreme Court jurisdiction. Further, it amends the constitution to demand that a Constitution Revision Com-
mission convene in 2019. Finally, regarding the CRC, it demands that the Director if CSAI be a member of the 2019 CRC instead of the Dean of Student.
Please contact David Kerer, Student Body Supreme Court Chief Justice and Chairman of the Constitutional Revision Committee,with any questions at chiefjustice@sg.ufl.edu.
